Senate Hearing Was a Fiasco
Congratulations to the Senate Judiciary Committee for putting on a great show.
Instead of letting the FBI do its job, the committee had to drag two people, Judge Kavanaugh and Doctor Ford, through the mud. To what end? It will make no difference because the Republicans will confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court anyway.
The hearing reminds me of the Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas televised fiasco of years ago when Thomas was accused of sexual harassment and nothing came of Anita Hill’s accusations against him. He still became a Supreme Court justice.
The #MeToo movement may have gotten some traction in the public sector, but it is still a long way from influencing the “good old boy” club that still exists in the Congress.
